TACKERS fleet starts Sat 15 October
All WSC junior and family members up to about 13 years old are invited to come and join in our TACKERS Fleet sessions which will be starting on Saturday 15 October. They will run from 10am till midday each Saturday through till the week before Xmas, and then again from mid-January. These activities are free and a benefit of you club membership.
The Saturday program is both for experienced TACKERS sailors, or those who would like to give it a go. Potential participants who may be interested in having a try before committing to the Level 1 training in January are welcome to come and join in. Non-members can participate in 3 sessions, then need to join the club as a sailing member to continue with the Saturday morning activities.
If you have a life jacket for your child, please bring it along. If not, the club can provide life jackets. This early in the season the water temperatures are still cold, so bring warm clothes and towels for hot showers, and preferably wet suits are best for the water based activities (but certainly not compulsory).
At the Saturday morning sessions, parents must stay at the club. This year we will have a sign-in system and will be separating kids into skill levels to better target activities that suit them. We look forward to having parents assist as required including helping out in the canteen over the season.
